    Good Job Cena. Can’t wait for Rock vs Cena II. Pwnez don’t you dare reply to me!

      Reverse Psychology Eh?

    • Oreial

      pwenz is an asshole

  • Fabian6sic6s

    What’s next for Punk?

  • Ares

    What a damn good match,

  • Backstreet Bungalow

    Yawn. This match will be the exact same as last year. The only thing different is The Rock loses this time. CM Punk making Cena look good tonight

  • Y2J

    Aside from a sloppy frankensteiner, Damn good match.

  • Peer Pressure

    Every time Cena and Punk wrestle each other they always put on an amazing performance. Their match tonight was amazing. Punk penis holders are gonna say he carried Cena the entire match, but real wrestling fans know it takes two to tango. Both wrestlers did a great job tonight. It was cool seeing Cena do a Frankensteiner, even though it was sloppy as shit. Punk’s piledriver was also cool. Shit, I don’t even remember the last time I saw a Piledriver on WWE tv.

    • Y2J

      I thought they were banned or something like that.

    • lunchbox87

      Im a huge Punk fan and i cant stand Cena .. but give the man credit both men pulled off a great match

    • Jervaughn Stewart

      I agree it was sloppy but hey you can’t expect the guy to do it like Mysterio or Eddie

    • mrchopper

      I find Cena tends to work to the person’s level he’s with. Him and Punk work great together, but check the difference between this match and either of the Punk vs. Rock matches and Cena vs. Rock from WM. Rock has to work at a much slower pace than either Cena or Punk, so it’s not even a case of “Punk makes people look good”. It’s a shame VKM is apparently fed up with Punk wrestling Cena, cos they’ve had some really great matches together.

    • Holliezboy5711

      Do you think the piledriver could set up a Taker-Punk match?

    • Spike_Spiegel

      Actually it was said Vince got pissed at punk and cena for doing the pile driver

  • Jervaughn Stewart

    Typical, no one gives Cena his props as usual because they’re blinded by hate. Punk and Cena put on a good match. There was no punk carrying cena at all. Cena can put on a good match when he’s put against a good wrestler

    • Orestis

      Everybody says that no one gives props to Cena , but thats BS.A lot of people give him props and me as well.But if we wanna be honest a match built like that, given that much time and executed by two main eventers can be no less than epic.Though if you look back there were a lot of weak spots but every real fan knows there can’t be no perfect match.Now, Cena did a good job but seriously Cm Punk did better.The whole Frankensteiner spot made me laugh a bit lol but still the match was epic.Loved the powerbomb and the piledriver ofc.They do need a brake though from rivarly matches though otherwise it’ll be boring to watch in every ppv…

  • Jay

    Cm punk vs taker will steal the show!!!

    • guest

      Lol an old fat guy and and a scrawny mid-carder stealing the show? That’s a funny joke.

      • Not a cop

        Mid-carder? are you watching in 2013 or 2007? Pretty sure Punk is and has been for ahwile now a maineventer.

  • Best in the world

    Cm punk vs undertaker match at Wrestlemania 29 will steal the show!!!!

  • Patrick Pumphrey

    What Cena Gets The WWE Title And Turns Heel Lol He Goes Back To Basic Of Thuganomics XD

  • The Rock

    Well my title run was fun while it lasted, just please dear God don’t put spinners back on it.

    • Progress_Now

      you’re not even remotely funny

  • Daniel Fundora

    I want see what comes next for rock vs cena 2 because i hope this will be interesting to see make no excuses for that match also great match with cena vs punk with powerbomb and piledriver!

  • GodsLoyalSon

    Just incase any dumbasses want to say twice in a lifetime because they are so stupid to think that a million dollar match wouldn’t be booked multiple times, understand that once in a lifetime meant that you only experience things for the first time once. Me personally I think its the right call and while I want a triple, I prefer to see Punk shine in his own program and not have to dominate a program with those two because lets face it, Punk would own Rock and Cena with just a raise of his mic.

    • Progress_Now

      million dollar match? I wouldn’t pay 25 cents to see that shit.

      • GodsLoyalSon

        You’ll watch it no matter how much you want to make it look like you won’t. Plus the fact I don’t care if you watch or not because I will be.

        • Progress_Now

          wrong, I download all my ppv’s and Cena’s matches are on a permanent skip-ahead :). the one good thing about it is that his matches are predictable as fuck, so I’m not missing anything new by skipping forward.
          and I doubt you’ll have time to watch it, you’ll be too busy inside your prayer room.

          • GodsLoyalSon

            Dude, you may like to make people believe that but chances are your lying. Besides, I don’t care what you do because what you do is not important to me, never has been anyway. Also why are you going there with me again? Is it because your trying to make me look like a religous wack job or is it because your a coward that likes to push peoples buttons so you can make yourself feel better over the fact that your a punk that would listen to anything or anybody that agrees with your religion while insulting those that are against it? Get this through your head numbnuts, I don’t care if you insult me, bash me, drag my name through the mud, or degrade my character to others; You are still a pompous windbag that likes to spew his stereotypical views onto someone that has nothing to prove to you other then he has more class than you and doesn’t use cheap shots to insult people. You already acted like a little bitch when you ran away from a debate with me because you claim that it would take you days to disprove what I said (which we both know was just your excuse to cop out) so I won’t have any respect for you nor would you ever get it. You can respond with another petty insult if you want, just know that they won’t effect me nor make me mad. You can call me an alter boy, chior child, or a delusional being; your still a worthless sack of garbage and always will be.

            So please F off douchbag, go spew your bigotry to your own people since they listen to anything that agrees with their religion

            And FYI; That’s not insult to say I have a prayer room because there is nothing wrong about a guy praticing his faith in whichever manner he so choses; its his freedom of belief that allows him to do so. You trying to insult me about a prayer room is nonsensical because there is nothing wrong with it. I’m not planning murders, building a bomb, or preparing dime bags to sell on the street; I’m just spending time with God and airing out my greviences so that I feel better about them and learn to over come them. That’s what prayer is, your just too stupid to get a clue on what it actually is. Plus I don’t even have one because I pray anytime and anywhere I want, its my right as an american citizen to exercise my belief as I see fit.

          • GodsLoyalSon

            Where you at? You got nothing to say? Just what I thought punk ass

          • Progress_Now

            sorry, I had to tend to pimp matters, pimpin ain’t easy dawg. your mom’s really keeping me busy. is she a pro or wha?

            and do you seriously think I give a fuck what you think? I wipe Mankind’s ass with what you think

          • GodsLoyalSon

            Touched a nerve there didn’t I? Nice to see my assumptions on you are correct. Firstly, my mom would be pimping you out because she’s much smarter than you are and shes someone thats will never be willing to sell her body for a profit; she views herself as being a more worth while being then some chick that would blow you for twenty bucks. Besides, your just admitting that your pathetic since you need a women sell herself to be your girl.

            I like how you are proving to me that I am right about you since you had to go that route to try to start something. Sorry bitch, but its very hard to insult me or get me riled up; plus you can’t be a pimp because your already a bitch. I think you do give a fuck since you felt it necessary to mention my belief. You are the only one that finds it necessary to mention my beliefs when most people just see that I am loyal to God. Mankind has been wiping their ass with what you think for centuries while I’m simply pissing on it. Go ahead add me to the list if you want to, you couldn’t kill me if you tried. I’m not your average person and people rarely fuck with me just due to my presense. Saying your a satanist doesn’t phase me. I fear nothing but God, Satan is just a roach that will always be stepped on. Besides, arent you supposed to be an atheist? Did you let you tiny brain cells fool you into another religion? Man are you pathetic.

  • TrueFan

    I can’t understand for the life of me with all the hate on Cena. and fans bitching about Cena/Punk matches = too many.. those two put on a better match than 3/4 of the roster.. ALWAYS! What a battle that was.. and also, for people always bitching about Cena not being a good wrestler, he is a damn good wrestler for a very bulky guy, and always continues to surprise us fans in hyped up matches like that. Those two both used moves we have not seen in a very long time! LOVED IT! Tonight’s RAW was by far the best in a while, and I personally love em all.

  • XSin Carax

    boring re hashed matches and people stupid enough to pay for it again. CM punk carried that match and cena is sorta learning to have different moves in his arsenal after what? 8 years? lol

    • TrueFan

      Reading this from somebody with a screen name “Sin Cara” .. I have no doubt sir, that you’re an idiot. You’re welcome.

    • Tanvir Ahmed Zisan

      another poor example of a human being !!

  • Fan or Not

    damn good match see here i know there are people out there saying cena sucks but this match alone bassically shut me up for a while. cena can still put on a really damn good match. man i want to see matches like that from wwe that was amazing. i dont care if i know who will win, but if they put on matches like that ill deffinently watch more. the first night in like forever that i actually tuned into a raw and man the ending was good even if cena won because on ereason it was agood match. If wwe pulls out more matches like that i will deffinently watch more.

    • Fan or Not

      p.s. sorry for my bad grammer i just typed with out checking.

  • Guest

    2012 was Cenas worst year
    2013 will be Cenas best.

    2013 will also be when i jump off a building.

    • Oreial

      goodbye no one cares

  • Nate

    I hate tag lines! It’s not that I don’t want to see Cena get redemption against The Rock at WM 29, but after we seen this match last year & it was tagged “Once in a Lifetime”, it made me root for a triple threat match including CM Punk. Don’t get me wrong, the Cena vs. Punk match on Raw was amazing! John Cena went out & performed perhaps his best match to date. So now this puts even more pressure on the Rock vs. Cena at WM 29 to deliver! The Rock & John Cena will have to not only perform better than their first match, they will have to raise the bar to a higher level than any match involving CM Punk or having Punk not in the main event will turn out to be a big mistake!

  • Mai Nguyen

    TWICE IN A LIFETIME. YES……. Fucking hell no!

  • fury

    Cena did it…..the match was much exciting than cm puk vs rock,both of em were supurb…i think it’s time for cena to revoke the dr. of thugaomics to kick the ass of the rock

  • Bushwald Sexyface

    I don’t have a problem with it this year..but..

    next year: CM Punk v John Cena, Lesnar v Taker, and..wait for it…Rock v Austin in both of their official retirement match.

    I thorougly enjoyed Punk and Cena’s match at Raw. It was PPV quality and the match of the year on Raw thus far. Those 2 work great together in the ring. If Rock were 7 years younger, thats the kind of match I would expect from him and Punk too but he isn’t.
